Mr TURNBULL (MALLEE, VICTORIA) - In asking my question of the Minister for the Army I refer to a headline in yesterday's Melbourne 'Herald' which reads: 'Army Will Hand Over Bay Rifle Range'. I ask: Does the Minister for the Army know that in this House at least three of his immediate predecessors as Ministers for the Army assured me at question time that the Williamstown rifle range in Victoria would be retained for Queen's prize shoots, interstate competitions and other important rifle shooting events? Is it true as stated that the Minister has entered into a firm proposal to give 20 acres of this range to the Williamstown Council and that the secretary of that Council has said that his Council expects to get the rest of the range for housing development? Will the Minister for the Army please clarify the position?
